“Of all the movies for there to be a metaverse screening of, this one is probably the most fitting,” said Jonah Tulis, who directed GAMESTOP: RISE OF THE PLAYERS. “The community of GameStop investors, crypto enthusiasts, and NFTs are all interconnected. People learning to trade at home ended up creating a movement that started a financial revolution; similarly, so many people are now interacting online, which has helped to really accelerate the true launch of the metaverse. The events of January 2021 laid the groundwork for future change, and it’s these everyday ‘players’ that have started the revolution in this new reality.”

Why a metaverse screening? As trading platforms such as Robinhood have democratized access to trading, so too has the metaverse and Web3 decentralized access to the virtual world. The premiere of GAMESTOP: RISE OF THE PLAYERS via a moon simulation in the metaverse was seen as the ideal setting for viewers and filmmakers to experience an entirely new way of interacting across borders and time zones.

“The GameStop WallStreetBets saga felt like a tipping point into the world of crypto, setting off a chain of events that introduced every day consumers to concepts like the metaverse and NFTs,” said Alanna Roazzi-Laforet, the Founder of Decrypt Studios. “‘Rise of the Players’ vividly documents the rollercoaster of events that led to the realization that rules created by the gatekeepers of Wall Street are just as open to interpretation by your everyday trader as they are to the hedge funds that manage them. We’re thrilled to bring this film to the metaverse, where we believe the ascent has only just begun.”
